Paddock Wood-based Baxall Construction sponsors ellenor's Charity Cycle for second year

Paddock Wood-based Baxall Construction has pledged to support ellenor's Ride Local Cycling Challenge for a second year. 

Now more than ever, there is an increasing demand for hospice care. We rely on the generosity of the community to continue to provide our support and wellbeing services, both from our Northfleet-based inpatient and outpatient wards, as well as from our patients’ homes. 


Throughout the month of August, we are inviting supporters to take part in our Ride Local Cycling Challenge. Whether you are cycling for fitness, for fun or for the challenge, you will be helping us to continue to deliver our services and provide vital support to meet the needs of seriously ill adults, children and their families.

The cycling challenge invites individuals, families and local businesses to ride a distance of their choosing - 100, 50 or 25 miles. You can complete the distance at a pace that suits you, be it in one ride or across multiple rides from 1 – 31 August. Simply record your distance on an app such as Strava and get sponsored!

“Baxall are pleased to support the Ride Local Challenge for a second year. Last year we took part in the challenge ourselves as a business and we will be doing so again this year. We are delighted to do our part in supporting ellenor”.

Malcom Clarke, Managing Director at Baxall Construction

“We are excited to bring back our Ride Local Cycling Challenge for a second year. This is a family-friendly challenge that’s suitable for every level of cyclist. This year we’ve made it even easier to take part as it’s free to sign up. We’re encouraging our supporters to get outdoors and get active this summer. Take your bike on your staycation, take part as a team-building exercise or take on a personal fitness challenge.

With fundraising awards up for grabs, we are asking challengers to share their photos and cycles with us, get sponsored and support their local hospice” says Jemma Kemp & Charlotte Ball – Senior Fundraising Officers.


Ride Local runs from Saturday 1 August – 31 August. If you would like to find out more information, click here to visit the event webpage or call the events team on 01322 626506.
